This Weight Watchers Chicken Salad with grapes has a light and fresh taste, and is perfect for lunches. I love using crockpot chicken for this because it makes for a quick lunch recipe.

Serve this on lettuce, make a salad and use this as a topping, or use it in a healthy chicken salad sandwich–it’s up to you! The mixture of mayo and Greek yogurt really cuts down on the points and adds protein to this recipe.

Weight Watchers Chicken Salad with Grapes

This versatile recipe is so satisfying because it’s filling, a little sweet, and a little salty. The nuts give it a great crunch, too!

Weight Watchers chicken salad with grapes is one of my favorite lunch recipes. It’s a great option for meal prep and it is delicious on top of lettuce or as a low carb wrap. I’ve made this recipe for several summer BBQ parties, and everyone loves it!

A note about mayonnaise and yogurt:

This recipe uses half and half mayo and plain Greek yogurt to replace the fat and calories from using just mayonnaise. Using regular mayo or full fat yogurt will increase the fat in this recipe a bit, though the saturated fat will still be fairly low. If you’re using light mayonnaise, please recalculate the points in this recipe using the WW app.

About the fruit and nuts:

Using the grapes and apples adds sweetness that can cut out cravings later in the day, but dried cranberries or any other dried fruit work as well. Removing the fruit from this recipe will reduce the carbs quite a bit, if that is a concern of yours. Removing the nuts will reduce the points.

Using homemade rotisserie chicken or crock pot chicken in this recipe can cut out a ton of ingredients you might not care for that are being used in store bought rotisserie chicken. Stores typically use a lot of sodium, artificial sweeteners and other ingredients as well as preservatives in their rotisserie chicken. Any cooked chicken will work in this recipe, though.

If you change this recipe at all, you’ll need to recalculate the points for yourself to make sure they’re accurate.

How do you calculate Weight Watchers points?

I use the online recipe creator feature at Weight Watchers Online. It’s a great resource for making sure you have the most accurate calculations! For the most accurate counts, use your exact ingredients, not nutrition info from recipes. Adding any ingredients to this recipe is going to add extra points, so be sure to recalculate.

    My mother in law has been doing WW For awhile and she’s always looking for new recipes. This one was perfect! Thanks!

  2. 5 stars
    I just whipped up this chicken salad as I had all the ingredients and leftover chicken from last night, and it was delicious! Fresh and flavorful and I really like the addition of grapes. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    That is one beautiful meal. I love that it’s waistline friendly too!

  4. 5 stars
    I love every ingredient in this recipe especially the grapes, yogurt and pecans. Thanks for reminding me to make this — might be good with the rest of my turkey too!

  5. Hello! This looks so good. Do you use Greek yogurt or regular yogurt?

  6. KATHLEEN WEYANDT says:

    What is a serving size for this Chicken Salad? Is it a 1/2 cup?
    Going to make it today. It looks delicious.

    1. It’s always best to divide your recipe to get the most accurate serving sizes!

      1. so you divide this recipe in 1/2 and then each half equals 3 points?

  7. 5 stars
    This was so delicious and easy to make. Just enough crunch to be satisfying and will become one of my favorite lunch items. So flavorful with the grapes and apples. I did add some celery seed for flavor but nothing else.

  8. 5 stars
    When do you add the vanilla? Is this the same thing as vanilla extract or is it something else?

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      You add in the vanilla (yes, vanilla extract ;) ) when blending the yogurt, mayo and pepper. I just realized that bit had been left out of the recipe – thanks for letting me know, it’s been updated now :)

      1. Thank you! :)

    I made this recipe tonight and loved it. I used the Greek yogurt that was only 2 grams of sugar, I added chopped celery and toasted the pecans. This is a keeper for sure.

  10. 5 stars
    Love this recipe. Filling. Low points. Crunchy and sweet.

  11. Mary Ellen Kopel says:

    On purple plan it says 5 points. What if I didnt add the pecans?

    1. I’d recalculate the points with the exact ingredients you used.

  12. Terri Davis says:

    I joined weight watchers online .. what plan am I on ? How do plans differ ?

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      Hi Terri!
      If you just joined you’ll want to look for our points labeled 2023 plan points. Weight Watchers didn’t name their new point plan so we’ve coined that term :)
      The other plans you’ll notice (blue, green, purple) are old plans that some of our readers may still be following.
      I hope that helps!
